WASHINGTON (AP) — Ethics trials for two prominent House Democrats will take place after the November elections. The proceedings will determine whether Charles Rangel of New York and Maxine Waters of California violated standards of conduct.

House ethics committee chairman Zoe Lofgren of California refused to go along with a Republican request to hold the proceedings before the elections. Pre-election trials would have generated headlines that Republicans could have used to attack Democrats.

The proceedings, officially called adjudicatory hearings, will begin Nov. 15 for Rangel and Nov. 29 for Waters.
